F. Charles Adler (1889 - 1959)

F. Charles Adler’s mother was a pupil of Liszt, and his father a banker. From the former he inherited a love of music and from the latter a strong entrepreneurial streak. His father initially wanted Adler to enter commerce, but he resisted this idea, and secured tuition from the Royal Academy of Music in Munich, where he was taught by Felix Mottl; he was also a private pupil of Mahler in Vienna between 1908 and 1911. Adler was sent by his father to South America to further his commercial career but instead he secured a post with the State Opera in Mexico City. Subsequently he was active internationally as a conductor of opera, touring extensively with artists such as Caruso, as well as holding permanent appointments at the opera houses of Düsseldorf and Ljubljana, and working as an assistant at the Bayreuth Festival. Undoubtedly a high point in his early career was when he acted as chorusmaster at the first performance of the Symphony No. 8 of Mahler, conducted by the composer in Munich in 1910, an event of major importance. In 1913 he substituted for Ferdinand Löwe at the Queen’s Hall in London, conducting Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner.
